Dear Meher Center Family and Friends,
Much love in Meher Baba to you and your family. As you may have heard from our announcement earlier this week, the Center recently experienced an eruption of Covid infections, around sixty in all, following a weekend gathering at the retreat. Most of those folks affected were from the Myrtle Beach community, and as a result, the virus continued to spread in the nearby community. Additionally, four Center staff members have become ill.
In response to this, we have temporarily discontinued day visits, as well as all gatherings on the Center. We continue to welcome overnight guests and have arranged accommodations to ensure as safe a pilgrimage as possible.
Hopefully, this will soon pass, and we can resume normal operations. Like many, we thought we were ‘out of the woods’ with Covid, but Baba is clearly informing us otherwise. Going forward, we intend to take great care in how we manage the retreat space to ensure the safety and health of those who visit His home.
We have been asking our local community members to please continue to contact the Gateway if you have any cold/flu symptoms, so that we can track local numbers who remain infected. Additionally, if you have been sick and are now better, please let us know, to help us make an informed decision about the Center's reopening.
In Baba’s love and service,
For Meher Center board and staff
